Alter Nordfriedhof (Munich)

The Alter Nordfriedhof ("Old North Cemetery") is a former cemetery located in the Arcisstrasse in Maxvorstadt, Munich, Bavaria, Germany. It is not to be confused with the Nordfriedhof in Munich, which was set up only a short time later in Schwabing. Construction began in 1866 to designs by the city architect Arnold Zenetti.

Until the middle of the 19th century the city of Munich had only a single public burial ground, the present Alter S├╝dfriedhof. This was growing too small however for the rapidly growing city, and planning therefore began for a new burial ground in the north of the city.
